Homosexuality: from the death penalty to gay marriage

Homosexuality: from the death penalty to gay marriage
- The Netherlands in April 2001 became the first country in the world to allow gay and lesbian couples to marry in a civil ceremony.
Twelve European countries followed: Belgium, Britain (except Northern Ireland), Denmark, Finland, France, Iceland, Ireland, Luxembourg, Norway, Portugal, Spain, and Sweden.
Some European countries only allow homosexuals to enter into civil partnerships, including Austria, Croatia, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy and the Czech Republic.
